A selection of routes that are suitable for Trampers, near the hire locations:
Suitable for manual wheelchairs, as well as powerchairs and scooters. Routes are predominantly flat with largely smooth, bound surfaces. There is a good level of supporting services nearby.
More undulating than grade 1, best suited to scooters and powerchairs. Routes are generally on good tracks, although there may be stony or soft going stretches with shallow ruts. Gradients are limited to less that 1 in 10 with a maximum climb of 50 metres. There are usually some supporting service facilities en route or nearby.
Similar to grade 2, but with more height gain (up to 100 metres), and / or unavoidable stretches of more difficult ground. Supporting facilities are often available nearby, or within a short distance.
Routes that involve height gain up to 200 metres, including some steep pitches and / or rough and technical sections. Consequently, few ‘town’ scooters or powerchairs are suitable and a more robust off-road model is usually necessary to ensure safety. Supporting facilities may not be available en route or very nearby.
Routes that are some distance from roads on exposed hillsides over rough tracks with significant slopes, cambers and climbs. The routes involve longer stretches of rougher going than other grades, with steeper slopes (up to 1 in 5) and greater height gain (over 200 metres). Only suitable for robust models of powerchairs and scooters designed for off-road use. Supporting facilities are unlikely to be available en route or very nearby.
